The crash forced authorities to close the road for most of the day. M-120 was reopened shortly after 3 p.m.
The crash happened around 7 a.m. on M-120 (Holton Road) between Michillinda and Ryerson roads, just south of Twin Lake. Michigan Department of Transportation closed down northbound and southbound M-120 around that time.
According to police on the scene, a semi hauling two big trailers of construction aggregate collided with another vehicle. The semi tipped over and, according to a witness, caught on fire.
Police confirmed that the driver of the semi was killed in the crash. Police on the scene told WZZM-TV that the driver of the second vehicle was hospitalized.
The material the semi was hauling spilled all over road and into the nearby ditches.
